Ant Farm 1969-1971: Early Underground Adventures with Space, Land, and Time

Filmmaker Laura Harrison presents a work-in-progress documentary about going through fire (literally) for art

Anyone who’s driven through Amarillo and been a bit surprised to find ten upended Cadillacs, graffitied to the max and buried halfway in the ground, might want to head down to Aurora Picture Show’s “Video Salon” event to see the documentary film Ant Farm 1969-1971: Early Underground Adventures with Space, Land, and Time. Ant Farm is the name of the San Francisco performance art, architecture and video collective that created Cadillac Ranch. Filmmaker Laura Harrison will be in attendance to present her work-in-progress documentary about the collective’s early work, like Media Burn, a video featuring another Cadillac, this time driving through a stack of burning televisions. The film, also screening at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, also features talk of sex in inflatable structures…We guess you just had to be there. 1 p.m. Aurora Video Library, 1524 Sul Ross. For information, call 713-868-2101 or visit www.aurorapictureshow.org. Free.
Sun., Jan. 11, 1-2 p.m., 2009
